Driftless Area Land Conservancy's purpose is to maintain and enhance the health, diversity and beauty of Southwest Wisconsin's natural and agricultural landscape through permanent land protection and restoration, and improve people's lives by connecting them to the land and to each other.
Land Protection & Outreach
We believe that protecting the natural world and engaging people in its vast wonder is one of the most important gifts that we can pass on to our children and the generations that follow. We strive to educate, engage and inspire people and facilitate their connection to the land and to each other. Through focused land protection and management and by providing opportunities for people to engage with and enjoy the outdoors, we can help protect and improve the Driftless Area for everyone, forever.

The Peace of Wild Things Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
